Today I’m giving you the pleasure of hearing me moan about all of the things that I most definitely don’t have time for…
Automated Twitter DMs
You know those annoying “Hi, how are you? Thanks for following me, check out my blog: ______” messages on Twitter? I appreciate that people want to increase their blog exposure but you may as well send me a message saying “I don’t really have an interested in talking to you but I really want to increase my blog stats” – at least then you’d come across as genuine.
Waiting for my hair to dry naturally
I used to always wait for my hair to dry but now I never seem to have the time to. I either was my hair before I go to bed, in which case I don’t want to delay my beauty sleep for the sake of my dripping wet hair, or I was it in the morning before uni, in which case I also don’t have time to waste waiting around for my hair to dry.
People stopping me in the street to sign up to things
Sky and AA, I’m looking at you. If I’m walking quickly then I’m quite possibly late for work and really don’t have time to stop at chat about an internet provider that I don’t need or car insurance that I already have. I know that it’s your job and you need to earn a living, but I don’t like being pressured into talking to someone I don’t know about something I don’t care about.
Getting up when my first alarm goes off
Everyone does this. Why would I get up to the sound of my first alarm when I can get up to the one that goes off 45 minutes later?
People on the tube that think their luggage deserves a seat
Your bag is not a human being so it has no business being on a seat. It’s rush hour and there’s barely room to stand on the tube, so why do you think that your bag has more of a need to rest its legs that an actual, breathing person?
Thanks for reading!
I’d love to hear about the things that you don’t have time for – let’s have a good old moan together.
